Hip And Knee Doc



Consider this my annual rant about how much I dislike trampolines.

When we bought our house almost 7 years ago it came with an in-ground trampoline surrounded with a brick border. The hole was a good 10 feet deep and the trampoline was at least 12 feet in diameter so it was pretty big. My daughter was 2 years old at the time and before we moved in I had it removed and the hole filled.

I know kids love them but they can cause serious head and neck injuries and some accidents can be fatal. If you have a trampoline only allow one child on at a time and never leave them unattended. I have also treated several adults with very serious injuries from jumping on the trampoline. Take my advice and stay off them!

In my opinion it’s simply not worth the risk.
